How We Advocate For You

The Social Security Administration is a large, government bureaucracy. This fact, alone, makes dealing with the agency a frustrating endeavor, even when you are at your best. When your health is impaired, and you are worried about your future and your family, dealing with the lawyers of Social Security bureaucracy – and the paperwork and impersonal service that come with it – can be overwhelming. You do not have to go it alone. George Heppner and Aline Gaba, the experienced Social Security disability lawyers at the San Diego Disability Law Group, can help.
